So when Ash and friends decide to try a spell to transport them to Koretris, Ash doesn’t think anything will happen. But the spell works, and Ash discovers that Koretris is actually a real place with real inhabitants and very real danger. But if Koretris is real, why is Ash there? Everyone has always called Ash a boy. Ash uses he/him pronouns. Shouldn’t the spell have kept Ash out? And what does it mean if it let Ash in?
